CENTENNIAL, Colo.--There was plenty of excitement among the Colorado Avalanche prospects on the first day of on-ice activities at the team's development camp.
But for defenseman Conor Timmins, the drills and practices were especially meaningful after 14 months of battling back from a head injury that included post-concussion symptoms.
"I think every day you take a step forward, it's a big step with this kind of injury," Timmins said. "Obviously it's been awhile, but for me to get out there with the boys, it's really fun. I really enjoyed myself out there."
